Walk for miles along the beach or out on the jetty to see the beautiful sunsets here in Venice. Right at our beach we dig for fossilized sharks teeth. I have seen them sometimes on top of the sand and surf as you walk along the Main Venice Beach. Lots of fun.
Venice Island House is located a short walk to the main Venice public beach located at the end of Venice Avenue. This historic location was once a fine resort hotel. Over the years it has been transformed into a lovely pavilion beach cafe with outside showers and bathrooms. Only one block away from our house!
Venice Island House is also located just west of the Historic downtown shopping street with fine restaurants, and interesting shops. Venice library, community center, and art center are just blocks away. There is a lovely central park which has the sidewalk fountains for children and adults to run through. Huge banyan trees cover walking trails which take you straight to the beach. Rental shops are available for boating, kayaking, wind surfing, para-sailing, water skiing, snorkeling, deep sea diving and fishing. There is a large pier is on the island, and can be used for fishing with no license required.
Biking is a popular activity on the island, with many bike trails to choose from. We have three bikes available at the house, plus rentals nearby. There is an 18 hole golf course on the south part of the island, as well as a small airport where you can take sightseeing plane or helicopter rides. Just around the corner from the house is a small convenience food shop with many beach items such as sunscreen and hats. Come to our lovely house and have your vacation in Paradise!
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Living in this quaint small town is a dream come true. We are so thankful to live in such a beautiful place in this world. We purchased this house in 2013, and are so enjoying the beach, the pool, the historic town, and the quaint small town feel of this perfect spot in paradise. We live here in the winter only, and provide the rest of the year for our guests.
Why the Owner Chose Island of Venice:
We love our little downtown with boutiques, shell shops, clothing, shoes, and designer home shops. The restaurants are excellent, and there are so many, you could try one every day you are on vacation!! The town was originally designed by urban designer John Nolan, whose grandson is a friend of our son!! There are many amazing parks like the palm park and the arboretum park with all the trees and plants labeled. There are many beaches on the island, with different feel of the beach to explore. The best fun we have is collecting shells and sharks teeth, which we display in our home. This is one of only a few places you can find the fossilized sharks teeth on Florida beaches. The water here changes from day to day, but we love to explore the shallow water and sand bars near the beach with snorkeling. We see many dolphins swimming just yards from the edge of the waters, many different fish and have even seen a small sting ray. We have many different types of birds, pelicans, blue herons, egrets to mention a few. The best thing about our house is it is in a quiet neighborhood, and so close to the beach, it only takes a minute or two to walk over there.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Venice House has been designed and furnished as a Mediterranean Villa with 2500 square feet of living space to enjoy. Our pool is heated and very enjoyable and relaxing. It's really great to come back from the beach and head straight into the pool!! The house has a beautiful new kitchen with high quality appliances and granite counters. Every bathroom is granite and tile, and the floors are marble tile inside, wood or wool carpeting. This is a designer quality home, with all the rooms furnished by a local interior designer. It is wonderful to sit on the front porch in the morning and enjoy the sunshine and the archways which look out on to our tropical palm trees and plantings.
